Volunteer Opportunities for Women Over 50 Film Festival
20th – 22nd September 2019

Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) champions and showcases the work of older women on screen and behind the camera with an annual short film festival and year round events and film screenings.

WOFFF addresses the ageism and sexism many women face in the film industry. We screen films celebrating older women on both sides of the camera. We believe inclusive spaces to watch films together and conversations between generations of women can help make older and younger women feel less isolated and more connected.

WOFFF is a volunteer-led and volunteer-run Community Interest Company. We’re a friendly, inclusive bunch and would love you to become part of our community. Everyone is welcome at WOFFF.

WOFFF aims to:

  • Showcase outstanding work of older women on screen and behind the camera
  • Create a film community centred around older women
  • Help combat isolation and loneliness in older women

At WOFFF we are:

  • age-positive
  • inclusive
  • friendly
  • intersectional
  • empowering
  • accessible

Our 2019 festival will feature more amazing short films centring on the lives and work of older women. We’ll be hosting our traditional all-female panel event and offering practical, fun workshops. WOFFF filmmakers will be taking part in Q&As after each programme of shorts. There will also be special industry and networking events for filmmakers who attend WOFFF19.

This year WOFFF returns to Depot, the award-winning 3-screen cinema with café restaurant, bar, education room, editing suite and garden in Lewes, East Sussex. The festival will launch on Friday 20th September, followed by two days of workshops, films and Q&As on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd.

We are looking for volunteers with excellent communication skills and a friendly manner to join the WOFFF team. You will help usher guests into the cinema, answer visitor questions, manage guest lists and much more besides. This is an excellent opportunity to gain some experience of film festivals, meet new people and make new friends, as well as see some great films.

Volunteers will be based at Depot in Lewes and will be provided with a free volunteer t-shirt. As a thank you for helping us, we will give you last minute entry to screenings and workshops, space permitting, and £10 per day to cover your travel and food.

To apply, please complete our Volunteer Application form here.

If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Charlotte.
